Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Fast and agile, Phillips sticks to receivers and closes on the ball.
  • Plays the ball as if it was thrown for him, showing burst back to the ball as well as good timing for the jump ball.
  • Plays with the natural balance and ultra-quick feet to mirror underneath, and he’s tremendous at reading routes and reading quarterbacks.
  • At his best in man coverage, moving down to guard tight ends and some bigger slot receivers.
  • His ball skills are very good. Phillips tracks the ball well downfield and has the hands and coordination to come away with interceptions even when he isn’t targeted often.
  • Effective out of the slot, showing the instincts and quickness to mirror when the receiver has a two-way go. Phillips has good instincts and awareness when playing off, showing good route recognition and anticipation when breaking on the ball.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Will slip off tackles and needs to finish more consistently.
  • Doesn’t bring much physicality, as Phillips seems unsure moving downhill as a run defender and doesn’t deliver much pop as a tackler.
  • Might not be the kind of pure shutdown corner that the top prospects in this draft have the skill set to become, but offers scheme versatility and the ability to slide inside and cover the slot.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
